The latest to add is the Polo.  Just clicked over 38000 miles totally original from what i can see with no welding evident nor needed. A very honest wee car with a few *giffer touch ins which will be left as is.  Drives lovely.  Brakes as always take a little getting used to, especially compared to modern over assisted stuff.

I can attest that one person on thier own in a single garage can remove, swap ancillaries over and replace the engine in one of those in about 3 days. Solid. It would take 2 days if they didnt loose the 13 mm socket from thier tiny tool kit.

I can confirm that a hamfisted idiot can change the engine on a driveway in less than a week, without any sort of instructions. Just an engine crane and a week off work.

They're lovely at this era. When VWs were just slightly expensive, honest cars. My mum had a Mars Red one, same trim, really solid feeling.

We bought one in JRG - engine blew up. Replaced with low mileage engine from scrap yard. Lots of Fails to proceed. - Blocked carb, and condensers being the 2 most memorable ones.

My shed landlord Rob has one as his daily, on a B plate. That had regular condenser trouble too until he replaced the cheap coil with a decent one.

The Pierburg carb is a Pierburg carb. You want an easier life, there’s a Weber you can fit.

G'wan lad!

 

This is awesome, genuinely very jealous :ph34r:  It looks to be completely rust free...? Even the engine bay looks spotless, what a find.

 

My best mate had one of these when I was starting to dive and it seemed (And was) way cooler than my Ford Ka at the time.

Its rot free, but not rust free , it has a few bleby stonechips and wee scabby bits. But its allowed those.

Like these.   However I can only afford to have rebuilt one Pooburg and my T25 has eaten that budget.  Its always nice to see an unfucked one, though.

One of the few V-Daubyas I like. Amusing because the 'estate' bodywork seems to give little more space over the saloon if rear passengers are carried. I never liked the LED warning lights on this generation of VW. Of its time, I suppose.


Squeak, rattle and roll.

 

 

Thanks restorer.

 

Save the Pangolins.
